Keep your job search going this December

posted in: Audiences, Job Seekers, Youth | 0

The holidays are just around the corner. You may be tempted to kick up your feet with a cup of cocoa by the fire and hit pause on your job search. But right now is one of the best times to keep your job search going.

According to a survey conducted by Manpower, 12% of employers intend to hire in the last three months of the calendar year. That’s more than in the last 6 months and more than last year at the same time, when adjusted seasonally.

It is true that many businesses slow down toward the end of the year before starting again in the new year. But it’s not true of all businesses or industries. In fact, 12-13% of Ontario employers in industries like retail, construction and finance expect to hire in the last three months of the 2017.

And, when the hiring managers who are on vacation come back, many will be looking to hire right away. You can make sure you’re a contender and get a jump start on the competition by continuing to look for and apply to jobs during the holiday.

To help you keep your job search going, we’ve put together a list of some of the most in-demand jobs:
